Soundproof Windows Help To Reduce Noise
Environmental noise could be a threat for you and your family's well-being, peace of mind, and levels of stress if outside noises enter your home and disturb your family's sleep, your children's study, your peace and quiet or your family meals.
Cut Out Unwanted Sounds
Excess sound generally enters the house or office mainly with the windows. The walls are usually not to blame unless shoddy materials or inferior construction methods were used during the construction process. Therefore, the area we'll address within this piece may be the lessening of sound that enters your house or office with soundproof draperies.
The most effective is the addition of soundproof windows towards the inside your window frame as well as the existing window. The laminated glass, "dead air" space between your two window, and spring seals that dampen any vibration within the added window glass together can reduce around 95% of the external noise perceived in the room. Additionally, they reduce or eliminate the entry of dust, pollen and other physical contaminates, and insulate the area effectively lowering heating and cooling costs.
Much less expensive and not as effective the soundproof window may be the use of soundproof curtains. Specially made, very thick woven and lined curtains muffle sounds that enter through the window and do lower the sound levels and enhance the quiet of your home, especially if the bothersome noises aren't from the sharp high-pitched industrial types of sounds.
The effectiveness of soundproof curtains could be largely enhanced in a few rooms where quiet is more critical, for example baby room, and sleeping or study rooms by adding custom cut 3"-4" foam insulation to the inside of the window frames without any gaps or leaks between the edges. You are able to decide to have this done professionally along with the hanging of the new soundproof curtains, or approach it as a manageable weekend do-it-yourself project taken one room at a time over several weekends, and save considerable money.
You are able to effectively protect your home from extreme external noise pollution by using one, or perhaps a combination of these soundproof window treatments to address the issue.
